secretary of state for obama, which surprised lots of people, her advisers said, look, this is the perfect resume building action. and number two, if you run in 2016, you will be younger than ronald reagan was when he was inaugurated, and as we know, women are so much healthier than men, particularly at that age. >> helene, i talked to a democratic senator this week who said, she's absolutely running. given everything that she's doing, how she's reaching out to supporters and positioning herself, it will put a lot of pressure on other democrats as to whether they want to try to stand in the way. >> i think it is. what i think is so interesting is just how skillfully she has navigated all of the foreign policy crises of the last four years, and managed to come out of the last four years relatively unscathed. she's stayed away from the israel-mideast, the most contentious domestically and politically national security issue. which is the palestinians and israel. she stayed away from that. she hasn't been dragged into any of that. she somehow has managed to come out of the benghazi thing unsc
at the states rights folks, they would disagree with the characterization of round 2 of obama care with the supreme court upholding it. you're right the supreme court upheld obama care. what the states rights will point to sleeper strands in that opinion that are pro states rights. chief justice roberts for a majority of the court said it violates congress's power under the commerce clause. he's placing real restrictions on the commerce power which has been the ace through which the federal government exerted authority over the nation. second, there are real restrictions placed in the restriction clause rather than the individual mandate. that spending clause restriction is going to be significant. these are seeds to not be too much of a conspiracy theorist that the supreme court is planting that it expects to grow in the future. people who are concerned with state's rights are reading that opinion saying we have allies in the supreme court now. we can do more. >> it's part of why the reelection of president obama was so critical was because we're looking at potentially two more su
of the united states, i look at this and say i can't imagine barack obama or any politician doing this. >> the gun that was used contained two 15-round clips. this man in a manic state was walking down the subway aisle and one of the reasons we ought to pass the crime bill is senator feinstein's amendment to limit assault weapons would make the 15-round clips illegal. they are not necessary for hunting or sports. i hope that this will give more to the need to act urgently to deal with the unnecessary problems of gun violence in the country. >> so, he's making an explicit call for legislation in response to a gun tragedy. it's worth pointing out. the only thing that barack obama has done on guns was make it easier to carry them in national parks. that is basically his record on guns for the last four years. david, you look at that, look at clinton and where we are right now. it's been more than a decade since columbine. are you at all optimistic about guns becoming an issue in politics? >> my optimism comes and goes. it had been low but it's starting to work its way up a little bit. tha
effectively set aside 31 state measures, constitutional and statutory. >> what you say about the narrow decision, we recall back to obama care. john roberts making the surprising decision on this that the mandate was not unconstitutional. do you think that john roberts takes into consider rationing looking at the ballot measures that won in maine, maryland, minnesota and washington state and thinks about the history of being the chief justice as such a young man, he's going to be on the bench 30 more years and wanting to be on the right side of history? >> frankly, i hope he does. i believe this court needs to get on the right side of history. they have moved in that direction with lawrence v. texas. i think all eyes are going to be on justice kennedy. who voted to accept these cases. many gay and lesbian advocates did not want the cases before the court. they wanted to weight before the issue goes before this court. so, the question is who? one possibility is justice kennedy decided before he left the court he wanted to make a statement in this area to change the legacy of the court. t
conversations? is the president of the united states. chris, those are some pretty strong words from strong obama ally. should the president be more involved in these talks? >> you're talking about an election that just ended. you're talking about a lame duck session and a new congress being sworn in it's the new congress that's going to deal with this and there's going to be significant changes. i think the president sitting back. letting the certain players and congress kind of figure out the main details. i have no doubt to come back after the president is sworn in again, he's going to put a major push in. i have no doubt about that. in fact it's smart politics, it's smart policy. i think you've seen republicans and democrats coming to terms with that, this is something that's going to get done. my guess is it's probably going to get done in the first year of the new presidency. joe after immigration reform, most folks suspect that immigration reform is going to get done in some way, shape or, form or fashion. after that, joe, what's, what do you think is going to be the focus of this pr
